On Wednesday I gave a talk to Leeds Inventors’ Club entitled “Keeping the Sharks at Bay: Resolving Disputes between Co-Inventors, Licensees, Investors and Third Parties”. In it I took four typical case histories which had given rise to difficulties for individual inventors and suggested some remedies. In other words, turning shark into delicious shark’s fin soup.
I have amended the slides to take account of the site’s format and posted them to Slideshare. So far I have had some good reviews – at least on twitter. David Flint who specializes in IP and competition law in a leading Glasgow law firm tweeted:
“@nipclaw You’re too modest. Having read it, I’m sure it was the content – everyone in IP should read http://www.slideshare.net/nipclaw/keeping-the-sharks-at-bay“
Another accolade came from To Palovi who re-tweeted Slideshare’s mention. The reason I am so flattered is that To Palovi is about to be appointed to an EPO Board of Appeals.
